Thereโ€™s just something amazing and transformational about being surrounded by nature.

The way you can unplug and strip away all of the distractions that are clogging up your mind.

The way you can sit quietly, alone with your thoughts and feelings.

The way everything seems to just stand still while all the stress melts away and your mind is at ease.

Itโ€™s what gives me joy in life and brings me peace and balance ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Any other nature lovers out there?

Wanna look good or do you wanna feel good?

Itโ€™s perfectly fine to want both, but many people under value the benefits of feeling good when it comes to exercise.

Here are 5 benefits of a stronger back:

Often referred to as the posterior chain indicating the muscles on the posterior side of the body, these muscles are greatly responsible for movement and support.
Every time you reach, lift, bend, pull, sit or stand, these muscles are at work.

Posture - The muscles behind the scene are largely responsible for "good" posture and allow for good alignment and function.

Pain reduction - Strong back muscles help with managing pain by reducing the stress to your spine and nerves.

Better breathing - Muscles in the back aid in breathing by allowing the lungs to contract and expand better.

Function and Performance - A strong back supports movement. When we stand, reach, push, pull, lift, bend, walk, and run we need to have the strength and stability to perform without fear of injury. A strong back keeps our movement safe and effective.

Looking Good - Ever notice someone with good posture? Strong back muscles give an aesthetically appealing look due to the creation of symmetry from front to back. Standing tall and confident, a person with strong back muscles looks capable and healthy which is always a plus!

Whatโ€™s your favorite back exercise?

๐Ÿ’œ Set healthy goals ๐Ÿ’œ

Do your health and fitness goals feel more like a punishment or something you โ€œneed to get through,โ€ instead of an empowering activity that you look forward to?

If they do, then itโ€™s time to create better goals that ADD value and energy to your life!

Thatโ€™s what I did back when I was overweight and living a unhealthy lifestyle 10 years ago. I vowed to start taking better care of my body โ€“ not necessarily to lose weight but to get healthy.

I had to love myself to take care of the people that I love. Instead of focusing on weight loss, I took steps that would help improve my overall wellness.

That meant changing up my diet to include healthier choices. I also began lifting weights, running, and doing kickboxing. I even tried a tough mudder race for the first time!

It wasnโ€™t long until I had lost 30 lbsโ€ฆ with newfound energy to keep going!

Itโ€™s all about setting goals that add value to your life.

For example, when it comes to workouts, what if instead of trying to fit into a certain
size pants, you went after a fun or performance-based goal, like training for a 5K, hitting a squat PR, or challenging a friend to a walking challenge?

And if weight loss is a goal, you can approach it from a positive, healthy perspective and focus on how you FEEL (energized, athletic, strong, vibrant) vs. how you look!

Do this one thing today: Rethink your goals! Take a few minutes to brainstorm 2-3 new healthy, confidence-boosting goals that get you fired up!

Tell me how your new goals will bring more value to your life ๐Ÿฅฐ

~Bruce Lee

The key to big results is long term consistency and creating habits is the key to staying consistent. No one said it will be easy to stay motivated day in and day out, but commit to your daily habits and youโ€™ll see progress.

What habits are you willing to commit to in order to get the results youโ€™ve been wanting?

Imagine the best version of yourself and show up as her everyday ๐Ÿ’œ

Mondays can be hard to find motivation. So can Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, and every other day of the week. There are so many days where I donโ€™t feel motivated to do things, especially work out, eat healthy, get chores done, work, and basically all the hard things.

But, it can be exhausting to give 100% effort every single day. And we have priorities where we spend our time and energy so we often feel drained and constantly have to refill our cup.

One thing that I have promised myself is that I will find balance and do things for others but also do things for myself.

Going to the gym is my happy place, my outlet to de stress and focus on my mental and physical health. Itโ€™s a non-negotiable for me and although itโ€™s sometimes hard to get motivated to go, I never regret showing up because I know this is my best version of myself. I took this selfie after my workout today. I struggled to even go but once I did, I was so happy and proud of myself ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

I challenge you to picture your best version of yourself and show up as her every day too. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฅฐ

Chocolate Protein Cake for breakfast ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Check out these macros:

63g protein
53g carbs
15g fats
15g fiber

My regular breakfast usually consists of eggs, egg whites, oatmeal, a protein shake and fruit. Honestly, I was tired of eating this everyday plus it was hard to eat all that food in one sitting ๐Ÿคข

So I came up with THE BEST SOLUTION EVER... mix all the ingredients together and pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes...now I get to eat delicious chocolate cake for breakfast ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

What do you think when you look at yourself in the mirror?

How do I look? Or, how do I feel?

When it comes to health and fitness, our culture is consumed with weight and
appearance.

The problem with that is when you focus on external validation โ€“ things outside yourself โ€“ it strips you of your power.

You end up relying on the scale, the mirror, and other people to tell you how you
feel about yourself.

What if instead, you took pride in all of the amazing things your body CAN do โ€“ and
loved it for all of its strength, power, and resilience?

What if instead of asking yourself โ€œHow do I lookโ€, you ask yourself โ€œHow do I feel?โ€

This is a radical shift in thinking โ€“ but incredibly empowering.

How I feel is much more important to me than how I look.

Making the time to meal prep a healthy lunch is just as important as the leg workout I just crushed earlier today.
